Veterans

The Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District teamed up with the city’s Office of Veteran Affairs to launch the new “We Honor Our Veterans” program for November. The program would create custom stickers for businesses in the city’s downtown area to put up in their windows to give clear indications to passing veterans and active members military that the businesses offers discounts to them. The decals will display the words, “We Honor Our Veterans Here.”

“I would like to thank the Glen Cove Downtown BID and all the businesses and merchants who are participating in this program,” Veteran Affairs Director Tony Jimenez said. “Our veteran community has sacrificed so much effort and time to protect our country and community, and this is a great way to say thank you.”

Patricia Holman, director of the Glen Cove BID, said she was eager to work on the project after Jimenez first approached her about the idea earlier this year. Holman designed the decals, and added that a list of the participating businesses would be available online on the BID’s website, at www.GlenCoveDowntown.org, and on the BID’s Facebook page.

“I am honored to present this program to our military and veterans with the hope that they know that they are always in our thoughts, that we are supportive of all their efforts and are thankful”, Holman said. “It was great to see how many businesses were happy to display the decal.”

“It is important to us at Glen Floors that we express our appreciation to the men and woman who give their lives in service for our country, selflessly and tirelessly, in order to insure and protect our freedom,” said Lou-Ann Thompson, of Glen Floors and vice president of the Glen Cove BID “By our giving a little in return, we are hopeful that it will be an example of our sincere gratitude and respect”.

The decals have been sent out to the participating businesses, and will start going up on display at various shops and restaurants starting on Nov. 1.

  Tinkers by Paul Harding

 
How does our perception of ourselves transform as we grow older?  In what ways does aging change how we view others?  The texts in the Growing & Aging in Glen Cove book discussions explore these and other questions about middle age, growing older, caring for aging loved ones and finding satisfaction in the later stages of life.  This discussion features Carol Waldman, retired director of the Glen Cove Senior Center, who will discuss Tinkers by Paul Harding.
 
The Glen Cove SAGE Foundation Reading & Discussion workshop series on Growing and Aging is funded by a grant from Humanities New York in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities and generously sponsored by The Glen Cove Library and The Glen Cove Senior Center.
